Laser Devised for On-Chip Optical Connections

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
ARLINGTON, Texas, July 24, 2012 — A new 2-µm-high surface-emitting laser for on-chip optical connections could give computers a huge boost in speed and energy efficiency. Traditionally, edge-emitter lasers are considered as the candidate for on-chip optical links. However, because mirrors are hard to form in these lasers and because the lasers occupy a large chip area, researchers have been challenged to find a practical way to monolithically integrate the mirrors on silicon chips. Now, electrical engineers at The University of Texas at Arlington and at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have created a...Read full article
